Encouraging Women Across All Borders (EWAAB) is building a bridge to a world where women and non-binary folks can enter and rise in any field they choose by providing young undergraduate students with meaningful mentorship opportunities.
We are faced with an urgent, global problem. Despite knowing that diversity increases a company’s likelihood to financially outperform their peers, women and non-binary individuals are still vastly underrepresented in STEM and finance as well as in leadership positions across all professional fields.
We have an inventive solution to strengthen and accelerate any progress that has already been made. We developed a program that would transform young undergraduate students into confident, future leaders so they can break through any barriers entering and rising in their field of choice.
Bridge is a year-long mentorship program aimed at first and second year undergraduate students. Students not only interact with professional tools in theory, they put them into practice. All in a supportive environment that increases confidence and connection. Bridge was designed to connect students with peers, mentors & working professionals, provide students with professional & leadership tools as well as opportunities to use them in practice, and encourage them to step out of their comfort zone to find and seize their own opportunities. This program not only works to build a bridge between students and their future professional field, it gives them the tools, experience and encouragement they need to cross it.
